Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the biggest video game titles ever. It’s not only the fastest-selling video game of all-time, raking in a whopping $800 million within just 24 hours, but is the fastest entertainment property to reach $1 billion in sales. With a re-release for PC, PS4 and Xbox One coming in Fall of this year, those sales figures are going to keep climbing and climbing.
However, this all comes at a price. A title this well loved is, well, a little too mainstream for some. Thankfully, Rockstar has come up with a perfect solution for anyone wishing that Grand Theft Auto 5’s online multiplayer was a little more underground. They’ve released ‘I’m Not a Hipster’, a free DLC pack that allows players to express their “incredible individualism and stand out from the herd.”
The new update brings an array of new clothing and customization options, including retro print tees, skinny jeans, tattoos, hairstyles and animal masks. As well as that, ‘I’m Not a Hipster’ will let players pick up seven new vehicles. Rockstar has dubbed some of them “classic nostalgia rides” that have “hidden potential to be unleashed with a few modifications.” Those looking for a more immediate wow factor are more likely to go for the six-seater, three-axel Dubsta though, which becomes available to players at rank 100.
Players will also have the chance to try out a couple of new weapons courtesy of Ammu-Nation stores — the Vintage Pistol and Antique Cavalry Dagger. Alongside the new items and vehicles, there are also a dozen new Jobs to players to try their hand at. New race ‘Before It Was Cool’ sounds like it will be perfect for the new Panto microcar, while Rockstar also shows off its tongue-in-cheek anti-establishment credentials with ‘Legion Square Survival’, which allows players to “battle the police on foot, in SUVs, and eventually in Buzzard helicopters” as they crack down on protesters. The full list of Jobs can be found on Rockstar’s website.
The new content is accompanied by a variety of updates and bug fixes. Ten original Grand Theft Auto 5 vehicles are now available from southernsanandreassuperautos.com, including Michael’s Obey Tailgater and Trevor’s Nagasaki Hot Rod Blazer, and players will no longer have to fork out for insurance costs if their car is destroyed by a player who doesn’t have enough GTA$ to pay.
Some Grand Theft Auto Online players may look at this update and be a little bit disappointed, however. There’s still no word of the much-demanded Heist update that Rockstar promised was coming this Spring. It’s hard to complain about a free update though, particularly with content that looks as fun as this. Meanwhile, gamers can check out just how lush the visuals will be for the Grand Theft Auto 5 next-gen release.
The ‘I’m Not a Hipster’ update is available now. Grand Theft Auto 5 is being released for PC, Xbox One and PS4 this Fall.
